Psyllid Quarantine Area Expands in San Luis Obispo County

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) announced an expansion of the Asian citrus psyllid quarantine area in two areas in San Luis Obispo County this week. The Department’s press release indicates that an additional 158 square miles in and around the City of San Luis Obispo and in the unincorporated area of Cayucos have been added to the existing quarantine area, bringing the total quarantine area to 268 square miles. Detections of adult and nymph Asian citrus psyllids in and around the city and an adult psyllid in the Cayucos area prompted the expansion.
